We join the crafty ladies at  Crafty Cardmakers this week & they said "Distress It!" so I have! I've used Patch Robin for my main image & I've done some paper piecing with a mixture of scrapbook papers & an embossed print from PenPattern Light which gives the robin a Zentangled look. The 2 panels which act as the background are also from PenPattern, one embossed with silver & one with black. I've taken the blades of my scissors to all the edges except the main image & I've also inked the edges of the background panels.The top right hand corner has been rolled down & secured with an embellishment pin which I've turned black with a permanent pen. The hessian ribbon has been sponged with Brilliance Starlite Silver & some crumpled holly leaves added. If you look closely you'll see that I have stamped the word "Robin" from the stamp set on the corner of the silver insert. To finish add  a label stamped with the sentiment, some pearls for the holly berries & some crumpled black Candis.

Why not pop over to Crafty Cardmakers & join in their challenge.
